My favorite gallery, by far, in Saugatuck. Wonderful selection of African art in different mediums from a variety of countries in sub-Saharan Africa. I seriously could have spent a couple paychecks here.

What an amazing gallery! I loved the vast diversity of mediums- beautiful and unique paintings to Christmas tree ornaments and everything in between. We brought home some new pieces for our house and several pieces that we will be gifting. Chris was super knowledgable and friendly. He took great care that we would make it home with everything intact. We spent a lot of time in here because there was so much to see!

This was a really cool place to walk around. All the art had the name of the country it came from and there were some incredible pieces. Definitely worth visiting! The only downside was there were no employees to ask questions about the art.

I am recently returned from Tanzania where they have an excellent gallery that has pan-African art. Amazwi has a vast collection of things that are of similar or better quality than what I saw in Tanzania, but the prices are considerably better. It is wonderful to see an owner who is committed to helping people learn about global cultures, supporting local artists, and who doesn't fleece everyone in the process. They have amazing stuff there. Highly recommend!

Awesome selection of art pieces. We found something that remind us of our trip to Saugatuck even though the art was from Africa

By far our best experience in Saugatuck. Super nice and friendly owners. The store is filled with lots of gems from Africa, very well organized and colorful, they did a wonderful job there. Highly recommend it to everyone in town! We’ll be back!

We last visited this shop about 15 years ago, shortly after it opened. We were impressed then and still think it’s the place you must see in Saugatuck. A very wide variety of arts and crafts from throughout Africa is attractively presented, prices ranging from under $20 to several hundred dollars. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. You should stop in.

I couldn’t resist this beautiful piece. The jewelry here is exquisite. I’m not a shopper but I had to make an exception for this!

We found this store during our recent visit to Saugatuck. The store carries a large selection of hand-made items from Africa. We enjoyed browsing in this store.
